The Interpolation Process

You should now have a program source dataset containing the appropriate calibration solutions. The antenna gain solutions have been derived from observations of a secondary calibrator, near the program source, taken typically for 5 minutes every hour or so. The program source antenna gains are derived by interpolating and extrapolating these gain solutions. Although these can often be skipped, there are a few steps that you might consider doing to improve the interpolation process.
